From John to the seven churches in Asia. I pray that you will be blessed with kindness and peace from God, who is and was and is coming. May you receive kindness and peace from the seven spirits before the throne of God. May kindness and peace be yours from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness. Jesus was the first to conquer death, and he is the ruler of all earthly kings. Christ loves us, and by his blood he set us free from our sins. He lets us rule as kings and serve God his Father as priests. To him be glory and power forever and ever! Amen. Look! He is coming with the clouds. Everyone will see him, even the ones who stuck a sword through him. All people on earth will weep because of him. Yes, it will happen! Amen.
Revelation 1: 4 - 7
When the votes were counted and it became apparent that Donald Trump had been elected President of the United States the reaction was strong. Those who had supported him were joyful, but those who had opposed the soon to be President began to weep and panic. For them the world had come to an end and Donald Trump was the worst possible way for it to end!
When Jesus returns it will be the same for those who are His enemies! They now live their lives in total defiance of everything God desires and declare that God’s Word does not apply today! But when that final trumpet sounds they will quickly know that Jesus has won and they have lost! It will indeed be the end of the world!
When Donald Trump was elected President almost all the pollsters predicted the election would go the other way, but they were wrong! When Jesus returns all those who are now predicting that it will not happen will find out that they are wrong as well! A presidential election may not matter much in the overall scheme of things, but the return of Jesus matters to all of us! If you are on the wrong side when Jesus comes, you will regret it and weep, not just now, but forever!
“Lord Jesus, give me the courage to warn those who oppose You that they may turn their hearts to You before that great day of Your return! Praise Your Holy Name forever! Amen.”
